text: The Small Rains break in the middle of May and for a fortnight or more thereafter there is wet and unsettled weather. Then follows a short fair spell. In the middle (111) of June the wind backs to the south-west, the monsoon begins, and for the next three or four weeks there is continuous heavy rain. [9 [Record T86837][Record T86838]
